Our Gift of a Miracle, 3 years later!

My Dearest Kaidence,

3 years ago you were sick in a way that mommy and daddy could not kiss and make better. No band aids or medicine could fix your heart. Mommy and daddy tried so hard. As much as we wanted 'your' heart to get better, it just wasn't part of Heavenly Fathers plan for you. Your spirit was strong, patient and graceful as you waited, but your body was tired. I am sure you already understand much more of this than I realize. I have no doubt that in some areas, you are wise beyond your years.
Today marks 3 years from when you were given a second chance to be a little girl. You were given this gift by an amazing family who's hearts had been broken. They did not know you, but they wanted to save the life of another. Sweet girl, they saved your life. I cannot think of a more Christ like act than that. It truly is a miracle that people are so willing to do such a selfless thing. I still cannot talk about it without crying.

Kaidence, your life has a great purpose. Many have prayed for you and I have NO doubt that those prayers were heard. Prayers are not always answered in the way we think they should be, but they will be answered in the Lords way.

My sweet little girl. You are so brave. I know you realize that you have to do hard things. Things that most other little girls, your cousins, friends and your brothers don't have to do. You don't cry about it, you just do it and make the best out of it. You seem to understand that it just part of your life and you do it with grace. You not only amaze your mommy, but those that care for you. Just know that you don't always have to be brave, its ok. I will love you no matter what. I still get scared.

Kaidence, may you always live your life with the spunk and happiness that you do now. May you strive to make the most out of the miracle that you have been blessed with. I hope that joy, faith and gratitude will always fill your heart.

I am proud to be your mommy!

Love You Forever,
